they are clarifying. do you think fema has done a better response with this disaster as it did to katrina, tammy i'll start with you? >> i think years have gone by unlike l.a. earthquakes and there is no warning i think what it shows that a bureaucracy is not going to perform well. we knew this was coming. we knew the first weekend they ran out of the water and unprepared. the people of staten island are still living in a disaster area. they pointed to all the money they spent that is accomplishment. they aren't looking at results. so i don't think this is -- there has been a lot of activity but is the activity actually contributing to making people's lives better wioflt say that the people who are living on staten island and people still without power would not think they are in the best and greatest city of the world and paying the highest taxes in the country. >> given what we have seen in mississippi, i was down there right afterwards, it's a lot better than it was then. i think they actually did do a pretty reasonable job but the issue is what is going to happen in the recovery phase. are the

to account, the way had he held president bush to account when katrina was going on. >> why do you think the media is not being held to account on this one. >> they want to reelect one. same reason they haven't asked him the key questions on libya. he still hasn't been asked, did he know about the two prior attacks on that consulate in the months leading up to the attack on september 11th, the american consulate in benghazi was attacked twice. that should have put the president on alert that that consulate was a target, and it should have been protected. it was not protected and our american citizens died there because of the confidence. the media is afraid to ask the questions. brian williams had a half hour interview with him. never bothered to ask him, mr. president did you know about the two prior attacks, one of which with a hole 12 feet wide in the wall. if you did know about it how come you turned down the request for additional security. >> uma: i mean, we still don't know what was happening in the situation room or if the president was in the situation room that day. we do know

failing as badly as it did after katrina and he also blames president obama for failing to lead, for failing to do more. do you agree with that? >> look, here is the issue, the issue is you have these big mega agencies, they're chalk full of money and employees and all year round they're supposed to be planning and waiting to react. and we're holding them accountable. we want to see these people and we want to see them helping our residents. we want to see them have clear instructions and put them out there. we have manpower, we have communication systems. government here locally is ready to help. we bring every asset possible. we'll clear the trees out of their way. we'll sweep the streets. but they have to hook up the electric and fema has to tell the people their housing options. >> gregg: what kind of a grade do you give fema? >> what kind of a grade do i give fema? i give fema a slightly greater grade than lipa right now. fema is organized -- >> gregg: what is that, an f or d a c? >> i want to reserve it 'til tuesday and i'll give you a grade because they're under direction
